The classic Bitburger - a mature and most agreeable beer - is brewed with the best of ingredients in the same traditional way it has been for many, many years. The result is delicately tart and pleasantly bitter - with a strong hop taste.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 Bottle. Straw gold, good white head and good condition. Gentle grassy hop and sweet malt in the nose, soft and slight in the mouth with some sweet grain and muted hops, low hop bitterness in the finish. Bitte ein Bit? Nein danke.

This pilsener is a extremely nice beer. It IS the classic great German. Very hoppy head.

A lighter pilesener that leaves something to be desired. Not very much flavor, but consumable.

On tap at the Gold Dust: Holy friggin diacatyl! This was like sucking on a Werthers! I couldn’t get past the butterscotch. I’m not sure if this was intentional or not but this beer was close to undrinkable. Even though you can expect some diacetyl from a pils, this was way, way too much.

A decent German brew that is not too overpowering. Very drinkable in my opinion, though not very complex. Very good with a nice dish of saurbraten and spatzel.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2004 Re-rated after doing a side by side comparison with "World Select". I love the aroma of this beer - I'd call it "Dusty Garage" - earthy, dirty and spicy. Body is not all that thick, but does have some nice bready malt character. The finish is crisp and refreshing, complete with a nice hop bite. Head and shoulders above the competition. Serve this to your non-beer-geek friends, it could be a good starting point for them. Original notes:light yellow. A short burst of sweetness, quickly followed by a sharp short shock of hoppity hops. unfortunately, the ginger-y aftertaste doesn't last, and the sweetness returns if you don't have another sip soon enough - I guess you just have to drink lots of this and quickly!

Yellow with a small white head that dosn’t stick around long. Quite bitter throughout with a light mouthfeel and a crisp ending. Not bad overall better than most pilseners I have had.

Very light straw-colored, with a thick head, and ample carbonation. One of the cleaner smelling pilseners I’ve encountered, with a bit of a sour flair. Yes! this beer has a nice snap to it, with its distinctive hoppiness, lively texture, and high drinkability. Great lingering hop bitterness. I like it. My kind of pils.
